Lamar Odom hasn’t been the same since he was jettisoned out of the Lakers lockerroom two season ago. Odom, in the midst of his melt down, still apparently wants to play basketball, and is hoping to get a guaranteed contract from the Lakers. According to The Sporting News, one NBA GM said that Odom is “beyond toxic,” and is not “worth even a non guaranteed deal.” “I would say he is beyond toxic at this point,” one general manager said. “Just going by what he is giving you on the court, he would have been a risk anyway, maybe someone you give a partial guarantee to just to see if he can turn things around. But with the circus that’s around him off the court now, no way. I think that’s the end of Lamar Odom in the NBA. It’s a shame.” Odom averaged 4.0 points on 39.9 percent shooting last season for the Clippers, and it would seem that only the Lakers have any thoughts of interest in Odom right now.
